New Announcement Trailer for The Baconing

Hothead Games has released a new video announcing The Baconing, the follow up to Deathspank and Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue. It seems that Deathspank has vanquished all the evil that needed vanquishing, and so it was that Deathspank mourned his lost Valeria... At length he sought adventure in distant lands and trod the jeweled thrones of the earth beneath his sandaled feet. Until at last he found his own kingdom and wore his crown upon a troubled brow. Wait, that's the end of 1984's Conan the Destroyer. Never mind.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel Delivers a Package of Screens

A fresh batch of screenshots were just delivered from Mexico, I mean, Ubisoft for their upcoming three player co-op shooter, Call of Juarez: The Cartel.  The game has been surprisingly quiet, other than a small stream of media from the Techland developed title.  The game was supposed to have a late summer release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3,  and that still might be the plan, but things just seem all too off the record right now for that to be concrete.

New Developer Diary Explains Why RAGE is the "Best Thing That id's Ever Done"

I had the opportunity to play Rage at E3, and honestly, it was great.  Simply great.  It was beautiful, the graphics were silky smooth and the level of detail was truly impressive.  The inventory handled with ease, and each weapon had a satisfying function and feel.  But don't take my word for it.  The masterminds at id Software have made a four and a half minute video in which they tell us exactly why Rage is the greatest game you, or your children, will ever play.

Hide Your Child's College Fund, Steam Summer Sale 2011 Has Begun

Let's face it, with 18 co-op releases in June you are already broke.  I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you are going to be spending more money on games over the next 10 days.  Why?  Because Steam is having their annual Summer Sale.  These Steam sales are legendary for amazing deals on games.  Come August you'll fire up your Steam client and see dozens of games, their names and origin a hazy memory.  Playtimes in the single digits.  You'll wonder how this happened.

New Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Destruction Video

We began the week with a mech video from Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.  Sure, it was cool, but it didn't have that EDF: 2017 "feel."  I wasn't screaming "EDF! EDF! EDF!" at my screen as I watched it.  The latest video, appropriately titled "Destruction," really captures the essence and of EDF 2017.  The whole attitude says, "Insects are destroying the city?  Not if I destroy it first!"  Remember, buildings in EDF 2017 collapsed if you looked at them funny.  Looks like they'll be just as fragile in IA.  The video is right.  We can always rebuild New Detroit.  Maybe we'll call it Nuevo-New Detroit, or even Neo-New Detroit.  Either way, we're gonna blow some stuff up.

New Video for Operation Flashpoint: Red River DLC

There's some new DLC available for Operation Flashpoint: Red River.  Titled "Valley of Death, " this content has eight new Fireteam Engagements.  You'll get an additional two missions for each FE mode, including Combat Sweep, CSAR, Last Stand, and Rolling Thunder.  These are 4 player online co-op scenarios with objectives like neutralizing all enemies, holding a position, or escort duty.  We were a little luke warm on Operation Flashpoint: Red River, giving it a 3.5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review, due in some part to the character SSgt. Knox.  Luckily, the offensive military stereotype doesn't make an appearance in the Fireteam Engagements.  If you have three friends who are good at military shooters, there's a lot of fun to be had here.
